5:08 pm
democratic. the dells have the odds in his favor. >> we'll be watching. thank you. the high stakes of business in the middle east took center stage at the united nations today as palestinians continue to push for recognition as an independent country. president obama addressed the united nation's general assembly. what does the -- is the u.s. going to do about this? >> reporter: officials made it clear that they will veto any effort to fully recognize palestine. palestinians will formerly ask the u.n. for statehood on friday but president obama wants -- is rejecting the move and wants them to negotiate directly with israel. abbas walked through the united nation doors and president obama made it clear he would not walk out with u.n. recognition of a palestinian state. >> the genuine peace can be realized between israelis and

heritage foundation, said alternatives like palestine status as a non-member state observer creates some problems. >> that would be giving credibility to the palestinians claims of statehood. outside of the negotiated framework with israel. >> the way forward, though, could lead all sides back where they started and with that model east peace process on he, the palestinians seeking alli es. and it's important to point out during the speech last year, president obama did call for the creation of an independent palestinian state. since then, there have been troubles. talks have broken down and with the continued israeli construction, the palestinian incuring of the israeli hill territory. >> where is the security council involved in this. why couldn't the general assembly vote palestine in? >> reporter: it's a good
5:11 pm
question. the reason is the only real power residing in the united nation resides in the security couple. there were permanent members -- they have veto power and in order for this to go through to the general assembly and be voted on where the united states has no veto authority, it first has to go through the security council. the united states is putting the marker here and that until they pledged to return, the israelis are not going to greenlight through the security couple and preventing it from going to the general assembly. >> tom fitzgerald, thank you. >> and will you spend $16 for a muffin? hear what agency did. that is the beginning of the wasteful government spending uncovered in a new report. an expert helps us break it down next. >> and the long wait for the u.s. hikers held in an iranian prison is finally over. see their first taste of freedom still ahead tonight. >> keep it here. fox 5 news at 5 is coming back.
